Subject: Sea Alert on "Wildlife Nannies" and
We are happy to announce that our TV series “Wildlife
Nannies”, which in the German version will be titled
“S.O.S. Tierbabys”, is close to being finished up in
postproduction. The US broadcasting station VOOM will show
the first two episodes on September 8th
and from then on every Sunday until December. The German
broadcaster ZDF will air daily (Monday through Friday)
starting September 17th
at 2:15 p.m.
You will then be able to watch the ZDF version of the
series on their website anytime on
menu item “ZDF mediathek”.
Your episode with the baby seals “Alpha, JT and Amigo” will
be featured in episode 5 of the ZDF version and episode 3
of the international version.
Furthermore we have decided to build a website accompanying
the international “Wildlife Nannies” series in order to
connect its many different protagonists and projects from
Australia, Africa and Europe with each other as well as
with the fans the series will hopefully gather.
The idea is to build a platform connecting animal activists
and their projects with supporters across the world.
We will present the many different great stories (150
stories worldwide) we have gathered while researching and
shooting, include a lot of pictures and some video clips,
and ask users to send in stories and pictures of their own.
Besides connecting and entertaining, we hope to help out
the many great projects like yours find more support.
In order to do so, we would like to present some projects
in greater detail on the website. Besides telling the
story that we already told in the TV show, we would write a
little feature about the project – which we would like to
“personalize”, that is not to write about the project in
general, but present it via a portrait of a “Nanny”. This
is to give users a little up to date insight into the
We would like to ask you, if you would be interested in
becoming one of these featured “Nannies of the Month” and
giving users an insight into your work at “Sea Alert”.
Besides introducing you with a small article that will tell
what we already know from the TV series, there will be a
small video clip of the material we shot at “Sea Alert”.
What we would then like, however, is you to write a small
blog for this portrait. We are thinking about a timeframe
of about two months, in which you would regularly (every 2
-3 weeks or however it makes sense) send us a blog entry to
put online. Maybe you have some new baby seals, that you
could introduce and tell the story of during those two
months, or maybe something else exciting is happening.
Additionally it would be great if you could include some
photographs – or even video clips if you have - with your
blog entries, to make it a bit more visual.
The websites content will be completely in English and we
will include a link to your website as well as direct link
to your “Help Sea Alert” site via a “donate now!” button.
We would be very glad to have you as a “Nanny of the
Month”, as we think your project is quite an interesting
one and one worth supporting and introducing further to our
I am attaching a screenshot of the design for the “Nanny of
the Month”-page so you have an idea of how it will work and
look like. I am also including a digital postcard for the
show and website. On the cover you can see a German baby
seal named “Mia”, who was found stranded and motherless on
the shores of the North Sea, raised in a German seal
station and is now back to living on her own in the North
Sea. You see, the stories of “Wildlife Nannies” connect on
Please let us know what you think. The website is not
online yet, but will hopefully work by mid-September. The
URL will be
I will also be happy to send you a DVD of your episode of
both the German and the international version if you like.
Just let me know.
Hope to hear from you soon and all the best from Berlin,
